My friend Jess and I were experimenting in the kitchen the other day and came up with this modern take on a traditional recipe.
This delicious banana bread is hearty and wholesome with just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy sweet cravings.
You can enjoy this nutritious modern take on a classic recipe, without feeling guilty or suffering unwanted digestive issues afterward.
It also happens to be vegan, gluten free and paleo so it can be enjoyed by most 🙂
Quick, easy and tastes delicious, it is perfect on a cold winter’s day served with
with a hot beverage of your choice (in my case a chai latte).
